Organizer: John Rance (Event Director)
Second event on this map and the first in the dark. Six loops, each returning to a central hub. Loops vary between 710 and 1150 metres for a straight line total of 4900 metres. The concept is similar to the recent SFU event except the loops are longer. Only a small portion of the map will be used so there will be lots of orienteers crossing and recrossing each other.
Do the loops in any order and do as many or as few as you wish.
6:15pm Introduction to Orienteering for Beginners
8pm Course Closure, participants must report to the Finish before leaving.
Always use good judgement and common sense. Carry a whistle at all times. Headlamps are essential to see and be seen. Take care when crossing roads and parking lots. Watch out for other runners, cyclists, and trail/sidewalk users.
Parking/Start Location: From the pin location in the parking lot walk 100 metres SW to a covered picnic shelter. Enter the parking via a narrow lane 70 metres before the end of Byrne Road.
Without volunteers, these events cannot take place. A hearty thanks to all those helping put this event on. If you would like to volunteer/help at upcoming WETs/WJRs or would like to organize a WET please let us know
Wednesday Evening Training
What should I bring? Wear something comfortable that you don't mind getting a little dirty! If it's wet outside, you might want to consider a change of shoes and socks! A headlamp or flashlight and reflective clothing is critical in the winter months (late September to April). A compass is optional (we have extra ones for borrowing). For added safety, a whistle is mandatory for all GVOC events. Read more in the WET Introduction to Orienteering.
When should I sign up? Please sign up by Tuesday night so that we can print enough maps, although we have extra maps if you forget.
